Fairfax County VA Board of Supervisors Crying the Anti-gunner Blues Over the State Preempting their Ban On Airguns
Covington VA –-(Ammoland.com)- The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and Delegate Dave Marsden (D) are all pouting over the pneumatic gun bill that becomes law on July 1st!
The pneumatic gun bill, put in by Senator Roscoe Reynolds (D), passed easily earlier this year, and was signed into law by Governor Bob McDonnell (R). It takes away the power of localities, such as Fairfax, to ban shooting BB and pellet guns on a person's own property as long as they do so in a safe manner.
As you can imagine, lowly citizens having such power and responsibility is just too much for the poor Fairfax Board of Supervisors to bear! Tyrants simply do NOT give up power easily.
To top it off, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors are such hypocrites. When Reynolds's bill was being heard in the General Assembly in January, a Fairfax representative assured the committee that Fairfax had no interest in enforcing the ban on shooting air guns in residences. But now that the bill is becoming law, the sky will fall if people start shooting BB guns in their basements.
Sheeesh. Where are the adults when you need one?
Anyway, just to let the General Assembly know how much this new law is hated by the people of Fairfax, the Board of Supervisors is having a special public hearing and they will be forwarding the input to the General Assembly!
Sooooo, they want to hear from the public, do they? I think VCDL can oblige them! Don't you agree, NoVA gun owners?
The nearing is going to be held on Tuesday, June 21st. More details on time and location will be provided as the event gets closer.
I know that I'm not about to miss this circus! See you there.
